Real Estate and Residential Property

Famous for its art, fashion, culture, beautiful cities and overall quality of life, recent years have seen an increasing number of international buyers and investors looking to buy real estate in Italy.


At Giambrone, our Italian real estate lawyers bring insight, knowledge and expertise to every transaction, applying in-depth expertise to a wide spectrum of residential and commercial property transactions.

Real estate transactions are regulated by the provisions of the Italian Civil Code as well as administrative, environmental, and fiscal laws and regulations. Over the past few years, we have assisted more than 2000 foreigners, mainly from the UK, Ireland, US and Scandinavia, with buying a residential property in Italy as a holiday/second home, an investment, or a place in which to spend their retirement years.

We have also assisted major domestic and international developers, investors, real estate funds and asset managers on matters relating to purchase, management and disposal of commercial, residential, industrial, leisure and retail properties, and leasing of land in Italy.

Other activities which are closely associated with the Italian real estate investment itself can also be handled by our lawyers. These activities include:

  • domestic/international tax and estate planning
  • drafting, translation and legalisation of power of attorneys and corporate documents
  • Italian immigration, work permits, and licenses
  • negotiation and drafting of commercial or residential leases

We pride ourselves on being the only real estate practice in Italy that has the ability to offer a true ‘one-stop shop’ solution for all real estate related legal matters.
